Rotor/Pad Replacement Question - Please help

So, I am trying to replace my rotors and pads for my first time. I have an e92 XI.

Turns out the 18MM bolts that hold the calipers are actually 16MM bolts on the XI fronts. Regardless, I can't get mine to turn.

Anyone else have problems getting these bolts loose? Can I break anything by going all out on them?

Thanks

elbow grease or breaker bar, I opt for the latter. Have a torque wrench ready for the install, these bolts need to be torqued to spec.

let us know how it goes

The only torque spec I saw in a DIY was for the wheel bolts at 88 pounds. what the caliper torque?

No offense but as they are only 22lbs, make sure you're turning them the right way. If you can't get a breaker bar in there, use a wrench and tap it with a hammer.
